As an elementary education major at Taylor University, I always thought I would someday like to be a professor. I never thought I would return to Taylor via the Computer Science and Engineering department!

After teaching in a public school in Indianapolis for six years, I decided to go back to graduate school. While working on my M.S. degree in Instructional Systems Technology at Indiana University, I realized how much I liked learning about the appropriate uses of technology in an educational setting. Later I went on to do a Ph.D. in Educational Technology at Purdue University while teaching full-time at Taylor.

My favorite part about teaching here is meeting students from across campus and coming along side them as they navigate their undergraduate education. Graduates of a Christian liberal arts university must understand the context of technology in their world. My favorite area of teaching is in computer ethics, and technology and culture. In 2009, I received recognition as Taylor’s Distinguished Professor of the Year from our Alumni Association. Now my challenge is to live up to that honor!
